A subgenre of music that was largely popular from 1996 - 2002 mostly. It still has a moderate following as of 2010 though. Bands like Korn, Limp Bizkit, Clawfinger, Disturbed, Hed PE, Linkin Park, Coal Chamber, and Vanilla Ice can all be considered Nu Metal bands. It has a subculture and the typical clothhing style of said subculture are baggy jeans/shorts, tattoos, piercings, Adidas brand shoes and clothing, skateboarding brand clothes and shoes(Adio, Etnies, DC Shoes, Vans, etc.) and sometimes dyed and/or spiked hair. Traditional Metalheads hate it due to the fact that Nu Metal dosen't have guitar solos and is more angsty thus making them say it is "Un Metal". I personally think it is the greatest genre of Rock/Metal to have ever been made!
Nu Metal fan - "Hey, have you heard the new Korn album? It AWESOME!"
Br00tal Metalhead - "Fuk Shit Metal it aint REAL Metal...SLAYERRRRRRRRRRR!!!!"
Nu Metal fan - "OOOOOO K?
Br00tal Metalhead - "Quit sayin its br00tall! its NOT METULLLLL!!!!!! Listen to REAL Metal! Like GOREGORE DIEEEE!!!"
Nu Metal fan - "Your a dumbass, goodbye" *starts blasting old school Staind on his iPod*.

A weak genre of music that's not at all technical or challenging to play. It consists of dressing up in boiler suits and masks and playing one fingered downtuned powerchords constantly, as Nu Metal groups are unable to play decent leads or solos.

A group of spikey haired, whiney losers who can't seem to reach past the first fret of their guitar.

They seem to be set out to destroy everything that TRUE METAL stands for.
Korn sucks. So does Slipknot.

Form of music brought back to mainstream after grunge was thought to "destroy" real heavy metal of the 70's, 80's and early 90's.
These "Nu-Metal"-ists often use rapping and DJ sounds to enhance the sound. Although they are not really metal bands, they pose to be by using angry growls and screams over weak, riffless guitars uncommon to real heavy metal.

1) nu-metal is an aggressive and raw subculture of metal which generally fuses influences from grunge, hip-hop, alt-rock, and electronic sounds usually with thrash and groove metal.

2) A name used by intolerant and ignorant fucktards who feel the need to slap labels on music in order to descriminate against things they don't like. Usually done by metal n00bs, pretenders and tryhards.

3) A kind of metal with lots of variety, all bands in the genre suffering from the bad reputation of few of them.

Slipknot, Korn, Limp Bizkit and Disturbed (as well as others) are often called so.

1) dude1: "Disturbed is pretty good, but some of their music is a bit strange."
dude2: "Yeah, Nu-Metal can be like that."

2) metalhead: "Man, I love Mudvayne, Pantera, Slipknot and Metallica."
cockfag: "lolzors. wtf wrong wit yo n00b? Slipknot iz totaly Nu-Metal. You r stoopid and ghey."

3) "Limp Bizkit is basically rap, but Slipknot is metal to the core."
